Reviews for Glazed Salmon
"Salmon with a tasty glaze is our favorite way to eat salmon. Rice and steamed veggies makes an excellent dinner."
"This recipe makes a great 2-hour marinade (basting doesn't add enough flavor but it is too strong to use at the table).Thanks for posting this Naomi!"
"I'm not a big fan of fish, but my husband is so I make an effort to find recipes to cook we can both like and he absolutely loved it!"
"I made this recipe this weekend and it was great. I served it with the Greek Orzo Salad in the same issue."
"Very tasty and sweet even off the grill."
